    @PlayOverwatch @BlizzardCS Overwatch console servers cut out in the middle of my comp game and I lose sr and am suspended. Refunds are in order? Otherwise there will be problems.

  • seanthegamer46_ Sean (@seanthegamer46_) reported

    @PlayStation the touch pad needs to be turned off while typing plz. I try to type while in overwatch and I can’t cause the touch pad is doing it’s thing when I’m not even touching it. I already have three OTHER ps5 controllers (they had stick drift) and they also had this issue

  • prettypinkpansy red | VISUAL NOVEL HELL (@prettypinkpansy) reported

    @j3s_tf but this is not a problem that happens in other games. most other games do not have toxicity this bad - they put in measures to try to improve it. like god can you imagine a 3 minute gloating period at the end of every overwatch match where people spam emotes and teabag?

  • obicgames 🕸️Obicgames🕸️ (@obicgames) reported

    @valksloba Some people say it looks like Soldier 76 from Overwatch xD but these skins are supposed to be from anime so...Someone say it looks like My Hero Academy but I don't know. I have the same problem than you. Idk what anime is

  • KAJOR_ Kajor (@KAJOR_) reported

    If u see this, can u drop down below some of the worst Overwatch tweets youve ever seen before This can be like a really bad take on the game, on OWL, surrounding OW drama, or issues way broader than Overwatch (could be on the eSports scene for example) Possible video idea

  • ChrisTGG_Twitch ChrisTheGamer (@ChrisTGG_Twitch) reported

    @discord why does my discord say that someone is playing overwatch even though i'm not friends with them. Is it a error or something?

  • hottiecoolguy Bran Pac Gom (@hottiecoolguy) reported

  • yeriwinter yr冬 (@yeriwinter) reported

    Overwatch servers down????

  • CJSeedge CJSeedge (@CJSeedge) reported

    @lFibreOpticl @Ru_NRD @MldGhost Cod, Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4 are all still MP as far as we know, and I don't even know what else they'd bring to Xbox exclusive anymore. Crash and Spyro, I guess? A Warcraft thing?

  • Vomit_Dragon Forklift Operator (@Vomit_Dragon) reported

    Overwatch servers down. i'm so ******* bored

  • ja_caicai jc 🧡🌙 (@ja_caicai) reported


  • pewnit Punit (@pewnit) reported

    @ibxtoycat @Xilefian Kind of the issue with Twitter. It ends up being a cesspool of everyone with the same opinion. You want a fresh take? As someone who's been following Overwatch for a while, the Minecraft community is ungrateful, BUT, I understand specific frustrations like how the original...

  • Weebusracoonus 🦝Dante🌑 (@Weebusracoonus) reported

    Let them actually fix tf2, I will gladly go give that game another try.... I'm so tired of overwatch and cod man it's not even funny anymore..

  • Wife0fMany shay 💜 @ best jules main ( 11 days 🎉 ! ) (@Wife0fMany) reported

    Getting unreasonably furious after losing an overwatch game on a smurf account is one of the biggest first world problems I’ve ever heard.

  • thundermutt5555 Conner❄️ (@thundermutt5555) reported

    I have played Overwatch for over 6 years and have been banned maybe 5 times and my language has not changed in the slightest. I have played valorant ranked for maybe 10 months with my account being LVL80 and have been banned almost 10 different times. Fix your **** @PlayVALORANT

  • Mcboots ブーツ 👢🌭🤡 (@Mcboots) reported

    Not blizzard having issues with their servers every other ******* week. Just let me play overwatch you dumb *****

  • OwBooga boogaOW (@OwBooga) reported

    Something about overwatch even scrims and **** just doesn’t feel the same as it used to, and ow2 just doesn’t seem like it will fix all the problems for me.

  • ww4evernever Celeste Martinez (@ww4evernever) reported

    @PlayOverwatch This game continues 2 have the most BROKEN system when it comes 2 players who play support! They dont have 2 heal and the whole team suffers 4 it! Not the support player but the team! The team balance is thrown off and it benefits the other team! Thanks OVERWATCH!

  • str1kerrRL str1ker (@str1kerrRL) reported

    @thinksimpleduh @stellaayou @AlexExamples I had the same problem with Overwatch. it’s so oversaturated and cartoon-y that edits don’t look good unless it’s ironic. and before anyone says so yes I’ve played the games

  • MidorinhasSTDs Midorin (@MidorinhasSTDs) reported

    Uhm did everyone just get ddos'd in #Overwatch

  • gh0stleyy 🌸 renae 🦇 is streaming DBD (@gh0stleyy) reported

    So every few months, I find something new to obsess over. 2019-2021 I had a problem with buying plants, then I started streaming, then I started doing my own nails, then suddenly Overwatch took over my life, shortly after it was then Elden Ring taking over…

  • TheChristian702 Christian Schultz (@TheChristian702) reported

    @BlizzardCS I just wanted to play Overwatch for a few minutes to end my weekend before I go back into full work-and-school mode tomorrow :( ETA on fix?

  • JasonM71137815 JasonM (@JasonM71137815) reported

    @OWAnonymous_ This take is so bad overwatch is clearly suffering from a lot of issues and if the team needs to put out basicly a new game to add new abilities, sound fx, visuals all while basicly removing annoyances like cc to fix the issues then so be it at least they are making the beta free

  • shoxy24707013 shoxy (@shoxy24707013) reported

    @Zack12106252 @zescht @freedjet8 Again that isn't true. one of the reasons overwatch died is because of this very problem. there's a big difference between confusing and this. one of the most common complaints about hero shooters than caster (like RL and thorin gave riot) was to make the abilities

  • jb_jack22 Jack M (@jb_jack22) reported

    @BlizzardCS Please fix your servers. The horrible grips of reality are starting to take me and the only cure is midnight #Overwatch with the boys
